A Topological Structure Based on Hashing - Emergence of a "Spatial" Oranization
Fourth European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL97), Brighton 1997
A topological structure based on hashing for an algorithmic reaction system is
introduced. Hashing, as a very efficient storage method
for certain problems, uses an important property
of the computer: Its ability to accurately
access a specific address in memory space.
It is shown, how a self-organising system can be built with this method.
We discuss experiments with a reaction system based on the
resulting hash topology.
